If you’re on the hunt for a house, we’ve done the hard yards for you. Take a look at these high-performing suburbs to fast-track your search.
Brisbane is poised for growth of up to 20 per cent over the next few years, and is expected to outperform every other Australian city. These suburbs stand out as much for their liveability as they do their potential to generate equity, so it makes sense to start your search here.
Its proximity to the city puts Bulimba in the 5km radius primed for maximum growth. Houses in the riverside suburb have seen a year-on-year price rise of 7.34 per cent, and the median price is now $1.4 million. Leafy streets, beautiful parklands and a happening cafe, restaurant and boutique shopping scene make Bulimba a sought-after place to live for families and singles alike.
The median price of a house in Albion is $760,000, with year-on-year growth of 9.75 per cent. Located 6km north-east of the CBD, Albion commuters can be at work in 15 minutes, or the airport in the same amount of time. Further growth is anticipated as more people learn about this hidden gem – it has only recently shed its industrial roots to become a desirable residential area.
City views abound from many spots in this special pocket of Brisbane, which is prized for its convenience to shopping centres, express buses to the CBD, and great schools. Its mix of post-war and new homes, townhouses and apartments appeal to diverse buyers, from retirees and single professionals to young families looking for a lovely home to call their own. Camp Hill’s 170-hectare Whites Hill Reserve is a fabulous place for bushwalking, picnics and wildlife watching, along with sporting fields and playground fun. Houses here have climbed in value 5.11 per cent year-on-year to a median $925,000.
With a median house price of $985,000 and year-on-year growth of 17.3 per cent, Balmoral shows no signs of slowing down. This sophisticated suburb is popular with families and its location across the river from the CBD makes for a quick commute by ferry. It has a mix of brand new builds and renovated Queenslanders in leafy, quiet streets and it’s an easy walk to cafes, restaurants and parks – and one of Brisbane’s oldest cinemas.
One of the reasons this peaceful suburb is so popular with families is for its safe, community feel. Hawthorne is also one of Brisbane’s most expensive suburbs, speaking to its CBD proximity, child-friendly parklands, leafy surrounds and charming streetscapes. It’s an easy walk to neighbourhood shops and cafes, or to nearby Bulimba’s ferry and vibrant Oxford St shopping scene. Hawthorne houses have seen year-on-year growth of 4.23 per cent to reach a median price of $1.1 million.
